Forum: web Subject: Blocked Site Error - Can contents be restored?

Hello!
A few years ago i used a robots.txt file to block the archiver from crawling my website. And i believed that this would also delete the contents that were already in the archive.
But when ich recently removed my robots.txt my website got indexed again and ALL of the old contents were available in the archive again.
I contacted the archive via email and they excluded my domain. Now i get a "Blocked Site Error".
Now my question: Is there any possible way that my contents can show up in the archive ever again? It is HIGHLY important to me that this is not possible.
Does "Blocked" mean the contents are still stored in the archive but you cant access them?

I.e. if i gave up the domain and someone else allows it to be indexed again.

I tried and asked the archive via e-mail but i did not get ANY response, which is very dissapointing.
Please, Please, somebody give me an answer!

Hello notimportant2 - I do not work for or with this website, like you I have had to contact this place too many times to have the same content removed.

This guy Jeff Kaplan does work here and somehow found the time to answer the questions above yours.

I know it's a pain, but hang in there, a few more months (tops) this website will be very different, or not at all.

It will be nice if you are free from your anger on that day. Try and forgive. I'm sure there is room for love somewhere in you.

"It will be nice if you are free from your anger on that day. Try and forgive. I'm sure there is room for love somewhere in you."

I take very seriously my Rights in the copy and distribution of my Works.
On 'that day' anger, forgive, love?, I can assure you will not enter my mind at all.

TPP, ACTA, SOPA, PIPA and Canada's C-11 will be the only things that will enter my mind and the court room.

'That day' as you know is closer than most even realize.

On a side note: I haven't smiled like this in many many many years!

Perhaps if you talked about your pain, you would get better.
What do you think the Internet Archive took from you? Is there something you can show us so we could understand your feelings?
And what could the Archive do to make amends?
Now, take a deep breath, let it out. Again. Feel better?

and not one of the many people who work for this website, yourself included, had the respect or common decency to even address it.

Jeff Kaplan answered the question "how-do-i-embed", actually made a follow-up to an additional question in the same forum but completely ignored the earlier posted question asked by notimportant2.

You jump into the conversation and add this:
"Perhaps if you talked about your pain, you would get better.
What do you think the Internet Archive took from you? Is there something you can show us so we could understand your feelings?
And what could the Archive do to make amends?

Someone should be addressing notimportant2, your 'playful banter' is useless.

Mr Cranky I have a strong feeling you are as up to date with the global changes that will directly impact this website.I personally think with all the Copyright Modernization in progress that now would have to be the most inopportune time to brush off questions avoid responsibilities and delay the inevitable.

Jory2 or Nomad,
Your use of unattributed copyright materials from other sites (the list in the Hitchcock Films and GATT restoration post) indicates you make the same errors you accuse the Archive of. You did not realize this was an error so you have made two errors. You must now rectify those errors.

The errors I have made were responding to your comments, I can assure it will never happen again.

I can not prevent you from rudely jumping in where you are not wanted, but I will not 'play' along.

Happy life.
